COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Jaw-Jacker balances our finest malted barley with a bit-o-wheat and is complimented with a citrus hop kick and just the right amount of cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice for a nice marriage of pumpkin pie and beer. Made in the fall to celebrate the changing of the season.

Jaw-jacker reminds one of a wheat ale. It has a slightly sour taste with a hint of spice and citrus. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The best thing about this beer is that it looks like apple cider. The smell, oddly similar to over-ripe bananas, is off-putting. The flavor is lacking. There’s a harsh bite to it (someone on the site called it sour and I agree), which makes it difficult to enjoy.

Has the most pleasing "pumpkin" appearance of any pumpkin ale I’ve ever had: a beautiful, deep rich orange. Not overly sweety, mostly strong spice character stands out than pumpkin flavor. Spice wise, it’s more of a ginger/allspice profile than a cinnamon/nutmeg one. Nice nose. Bright on the tongue.

Bottle. Allspice is the predominant aroma. Fairly light palate and the flavor of the spices is pleasant but not overwhelming. Not a bad pumpkin beer.

Draft at the Belgian Cafe with Pat and Sean Tommy. Pours a murky orange with amazing frothy, lumpy, lasting beige head and erratic soapy lace. Nose of spice - cinnamon and nutmeg, caramel. Thin to medium body a little watery.

bigtaster (554) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - SEP 25, 2013
From 12 oz bottle, clear orange copper color with almost no head on an aggressive pour. There is a lot of spice, I get cinnamon and nutmeg clearly, Medium body, slightly, oily, a tinge of spice bitterness, maybe from cinnamon. Malt is bread, similar to pumpkin pie, nutmeg and cinnamon. Interesting take on a ’pumpkin’ beer.

ryecatcher (790) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 23, 2013
Bottle. Pours a nice, medium copper color, slight white head. Nose is slightly malty and pie spice... seems promising then goes downhill from there. Mouth is watery and unpronounced up front, then this odd sour-vegetal thing kicks in, with an abundance of cloves (I’m guessing that’s the allspice.... it overwhelmed everything else), then this muted bitterness that was like drinking asprin in water, followed by a soapy finish. Fucking awful.

Ok, I may beer a snob but I don't think there is any pumpkin in this beer. Just spices from a pumpkin pie. Decent beer but I want pumpkin in my pumpkin beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

An ok pumpkin ale. It has a nice spiced flavor to it, but is otherwise fairly bland. Needs more carmel malts for more body IMO.
